Unless it's a reputable shop that can take the hit because they run through many transmissions, I wouldn't trust a shop that gave a flat quote before they opened the box.

Even then, why subsidize repairs for other people?

Shoot, I could send in a non-shift kit, non-X gear, bad helicals, blown output shaft, shot splines, rusty bearings 5-speed and get a perfect one back for the same $500 that fixes your broken pawl spring.

Actually, I highly suspect I wouldn't be able to stretch the deal that far, even if I were in England.
